Essen Bakery expands menu with more baked goods, sandwiches and more

Essen Bakery opened in the former Belle Cakery spot at 1437 E. Passyunk Ave. in the spring. Now that the “little Jewish bakery” has been open for a few months, the menu is being expanded.

Owner Tova Du Plessis is adding even more options, including a new breakfast section on the menu, extra sandwich options and more baked goods in general.

From Eater:

So you can pick up a slice of babka with coffee on your way to work ($4 for the pair), or if you’d rather, choose a croissant instead, perhaps the za’atar sort, which pairs easily with some za’atar-spiced labneh spread on top. There are toasts, too, with house-cultured butter and black salt, or fancier with avocado, pickled onions, and capers. But whatever you order, make sure it includes at least one of Du Plessis’s “grown-up” (as she puts it)¬†black and white cookies, laced with orange zest, and topped with 64% dark chocolate ganache.

    If you haven’t been to Essen yet, you should check it out. The baked goods are tremendous, and the owner/staff are great. Best wishes for a long and successful tenure on EPA.
